Video: Rubio gets the assist through Nowitzki’s legs

Jan 2, 2012, 2:28 PM EDT

Ricky Rubio does flashy things on the court, but not for the sake of being flashy (like White Chocolate back in the day). It’s because it’s the efficent way to make the play.

If you need to get the ball to the Anthony Tolliver for the corner three but Dirk Nowtizki is in your way, go between his legs.

Rubio has holes in his game still but his court vision and ability to control the game’s flow is uncanny for a 21-year-old. He makes Minnesota a lot of fun to watch.

Hat tip to Eye on Basketball for the find.

    it didnt go between his legs. still nice… but he went baseline with the pass.

    Did Tolliver have some kind of emotional breakdown after hitting that three?

      Nah, he just had a much better view of the pass than we did.

      Boy can that be taken the wrong way……

      After being on a terrible team for the last few years, any sort of success is exciting.

    Have to admit, thats pretty sick. If he can keep this up, he might live up to his hype.
